AMLO is “willing to negotiate.”
Of course he is. President Trump will get just what he wants, too. Mexico will dramatically reduce the flow of Salvadoran and Guatemalan “migrants.” And the tariff will pay for the Wall.
Winning is fun.
“I believe we will be able to reach an agreement, because reason is with us,” Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said at a news conference in Veracruz, insisting that Mexico wants to maintain a good relationship with the United States.López Obrador said Mexico is not interested in a tariff war, but slammed Trump’s tariff proposal as unfair.
Opponents of Trump’s tariff proposal warn the move would hurt American consumers and undercut efforts to ratify the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
